After revealing last week that Aliens and Terminator actor Michael Biehn was attached to play a bounty hunter in Season 2 of The Mandalorian, MakingStarWars is back with another interesting name.
They’re now claiming that veteran actress Jamie Lee Curtis was potentially spotted on set for the second season, but are being cautious and calling this simply a rumor as they’re uncertain of the validity of her actual involvement. So, take with a grain of salt for the moment.
For some reason, they believe that Jamie may instead be involved with Avatar 2 filming if it wasn’t for The Mandalorian. However, this isn’t very likely as the production moved to New Zealand last year to shoot the live-action sequences at Stone Street Studios in Wellington (along with some coastal areas in the country) under the working title of Coral and just recently had to pause the second block of live-action filming in Wellington due to the coronavirus outbreak. If she was in a location over the fall in California, the likelihood it wasn’t for the Avatar sequels as Jim is busy in New Zealand working on those.
Anyways, Jamie has had a long career with titles such as John Carpenter’s Halloween, The Fog, A Wish Called Wanda, Trading Places, James Cameron’s True Lies paired opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, and She was most recently seen in Blumhouse’s Halloween sequel/reboot and Rian Johnson’s murder-mystery Knives Out.
She would be joining Biehn and fellow newcomer Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Death Proof), who is reportedly playing the live-action version of Ahsoka Tano.
Certainly, a lovely addition to the show’s cast with returners such as Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Bill Burr as Mayfield, and Gina Carano as Cara Dune.
HN Entertainment was able to recently confirm previous rumblings that Alita: Battle Angel director Robert Rodriguez is indeed working on the Star Wars streaming series and adding that he paired himself with cinematographer David Klein (Homeland, Deadwood: The Movie, Mallrats), who he was planning on working with again on his upcoming thriller Hypnotic starring Ben Affleck.
Disney had planned on airing The Mandalorian on Disney+ starting in October but it remains to be seen if they’ll be able to hit that target with the coronavirus potentially slowing down post-production.
